guys are stuck. a lot of them don't know what to do. meanwhile you got both sides, we just heard about the president and the calls campaigning last friday. and democrats all kinds of them coming down. each is trying to stick the other with the problem but i'll tell you something. it's a real hard one. >> so we know it's going to be important to win. but what if moore loses? what does that mean? it's a sign of more to come, right. >> very few people initially accepted doug jones to win. really the on us is on the republicans. and if the -- if the republican candidate doug moore -- judge moore wins you got a problem. especially if you are a republican member of the u.s. senate who did not scream against his candidacy. it will haunt you. in 2018 it's a target on your back. but the real potential looser here is donald trump, the president himself. why? because when he endorsed judge moore, given all the allegations against the judge, it brought out all the allegations that were kind of suppressed after
the election against donald trump. and you saw that in an earlier story tonight. and these women are not about to go away. they have been ignited. that's causing a lot of problems for the president. >> let's follow the numbers. alabama heavily republicans. why will that change tomorrow in? they have such a big lead in terms of historical elections on the history. >> the republicans make most of the decisions here. do they come out swallow and say okay i'm voting for this guy even though he is not the right person but he is a republican. do they stay home because they can't bear the thought of voting for him more voting for doug jones? or do the democrats manage to crystalize, galvanize and gather enough voters especially 29% of the voters who are blacks as the core and somehow overcome ineritrea on the part of republicans. here is the deal. the secretary of state initially said 18% turn out. a special election you expect
that. now to 20 li 25%. so greater volatility process but i want to leave thu with this note. the election is decided tomorrow. one of these guys will win. but the issue of sexual harassment spt going in which. and that's likely now to be with us throughout 2018 and take some casualties. >> okay and we know this time tomorrow we will in theory have an answer. because it will be 9:00 eastern time. >> you'll be rejoining us. >> yes. >> thank you larry. we will continue to track every detail on air and online. read more about the final pushl online ahead of the vote. another big story today could have been worse. that's what police are saying about the attempted suicide bombing that injured four people at one of the busiest bus terminals in america. in fact the busiest. near times square in new york city. security video showing the bomb exploding this morning inside the port authority bus terminal in manhattan.
